rmonlv in Long Beach, California said: I work as a ramp agent in LAX for two years. You dont need training before you enter is like entering the military they will train you there, they just need people that can handle the job, Ramp agent is like bootcamp in short explanation, it requires a lot of body action. It depends if you are built to do the job. I seen a lot of people that was hired fat and they loose weight big time and they love it. Some people they quit in a week..

Hi rmonlv, do you still work at lax? If so what airline? I got my f2f coming up this Monday for a part time ramp agent position and I have a few questions.
